If there’s one Christmas movie we can’t go without watching during the holiday season it’s How The Grinch Stole Christmas!

We have a family tradition of watching the original 1966 version of the Grinch movie each year.

It’s a classic and even though we like the newest version, they’ll never be a replacement for original.

Recently, we created this toilet paper roll Grinch craft to go along with our family movie night.

If you want to learn how easy it is to make this craft with your kids (or students), read or watch our video tutorial below.

Grinch Craft Idea

This post contains affiliate links for your convenience. You can read my full disclosure here.

Supplies

Directions

Download the Grinch paper roll template, print and cut out.

Place glue all over the back of the Grinch paper roll rectangle, then glue onto the toilet paper roll.

Take a glue dot and stretch it out to cover the front half to the paper roll, where the Grinch’s skin and the red part meet.

Glue the white pom poms in a line to make the Santa Claus fluff. If you aren’t using glue dots, use the glue stick or liquid glue to glue each of the pom poms on.

Stretch another glue dot out along the bottom front of the Santa Claus hat. Glue the white poms in place there too.

Glue a single white pom to the top of the hat. Use the glue stick or a glue dot to secure the Santa hat to the top of the toilet paper roll.

You’re finished!

This is such fun recycled Christmas craft for kids.

Paper Roll Grinch Template

Included in the download for this craft are two separate templates. The first one is the Grinch craft in full color, as explained above.

This craft is great for doing at home or in small groups. If you are doing this with a larger group or you’re worried about using too much ink, there’s another option.

The second part of this file is a black and white version of the craft. You can print this off on plain white paper or card stock and let the kids color it in.

We used crayons in our example, but you can also use colored pencils or markers.

This will allow you to print a lot of copies for a large group like a classroom, daycare or library, but you won’t have to worry about costs.

It also adds a fun and creative element to the project since the kids are able to color it in however they want!

Either way, we’re sure they’ll love making this simple Grinch craft.

Grinch Family Movie Night Idea

Why not turn this simple Grinch toilet paper roll craft into a fun family movie night?

Themed movie nights are so much fun and kids love them! Here’s how we would plan a simple family movie night around the Grinch.

First, prepare the craft set up ahead of time. Decide whether you’ll be using the full color version or the color in version and print off the template.

Gather your toilet paper rolls (enough for each family member), cut out the template pieces and set aside your other supplies.

We’d suggest making the craft first, then watching the movie.

You can turn it into even more a festive night by making this Grinch themed popcorn:

or these cute Grinch cookies:

Prepare these treats ahead of time, then after you’ve made the craft you’re all set to watch the best Christmas movie of all time!!!
